What a great tour we had! My husband and I, along with a friend were visiting Paris a few weeks ago. We had scheduled a Walks tour in Paris because we’d had such a fabulous experience with the company in Italy several years ago. We ended up with a “ private tour” because we were the only ones scheduled that morning. Tina was our fabulous tour guide. She was so very fun, interesting and extraordinarily knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as the art in the Louvre. She really wanted to customize the tour to focus on what was of interest to us since our group was small. We really appreciated that effort. Questions were encouraged and answered. She even warded off some pickpockets and told us what to look out for. Even though we were not able to see Notre Dame inside, she still stopped in a place we could see it, providing us some history and information about the fire and reconstruction. Before the Louvre she walked us by the Pont Neuf Cruise boats so we would be familiar with the area and gave us our cruise tickets to use whenever we wanted. That was so helpful. ( We took the night cruise BTW and it was wonderful)! Afterward she got us inside the Louvre quickly, gave us time for a rest stop & water then did an awesome job hitting a great cross section of art, hitting the high points. We also appreciated that she would intermittently check in on our comfort since it’s 4 hrs of solid touring. We ended the tour at the Louvre and she even pointed us in the right direction for a good lunch which we so appreciated. Thanks Tina for a phenomenal tour! You brought Paris alive for us! Merci!
